Remember planking? The Ice Bucket Challenge? "Icing" friends?
Well, all the rage lately has been the #MannequinChallenge where you shoot a video of a group of people just standing in place, not moving, like... a mannequin.
No joke... My wife and I were with friends at a winery over the weekend. At around 3 o'clock, the winery was closing down to the public for a wedding ceremony that afternoon. As we were finishing our glasses off, a groomsman from the wedding party got everyone's attention (about 50 people or so) and asked if we'd partake in the mannequin challenge for the wedding videographer.
We all did.
But I digress. On Wednesday, the European Tour released what may just be the #MannequinChallenge video to end all #MannequinChallenge videos.
Check it out ("Black Beatles" song in the background is NSFW, so turn off your audio):
That's got to be one of the most impressive social media videos ever shot, no? Just the sheer number of people involved holding their respective poses for that long? Amazing!
Well done to our friends at the European Tour. Their social media videos are always fantastic.
